Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.
LT Trent Williams (@TrentW71) demonstrated growth and maturity in 2012 after dealing with some off-the-field issues in 2011. He was able to overcome adversity and bounce back this year to separate himself as one of the premier tackles in the game.
The coaching staff entrusted him with the all-important task of protecting QB Robert Griffin III’s blindside, ultimately leading to a Pro Bowl selection for his outstanding play.
Last Friday, No. 71 sat down to participate in a Twitter Takeover of the @Redskins Twitter account and answered fan questions. In case you missed it, here’s how it went:
Over the course of last week, there were a few awards and accolades handed out around the league with many more to come this week and next week. But let’s take a moment to congratulate the Redskins players who have been honored for their outstanding performances this year as well as take a look at their reactions and how their teammate’s reacted after hearing the news.
QB Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) was named Pro Football Weekly / Pro Football Writers of America’s 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year.
LB London Fletcher and LB Ryan Kerrigan were selected as alternates in this year’s Pro Bowl.
